Play and adventure with us

Our nursery is a place where children can play, learn and grow in a healthy, natural environment where each child is valued as a unique individual, developing confidence, independence and well-being through magic, curiosity and discovery.

Childcare with a difference, as we take children around the world on a journey of exploration, wonder and excitement.

We offer childcare with a difference, as we take children around the globe on a journey of exploration, wonder and excitement.

From the child’s first day with us, all the way to their transition to school, our core philosophy is to capture the children’s imagination with good old-fashioned play while working within the EYFS curriculum across the setting.

Founded in 2001 Westview & Shambles Day Nursery is an Ofsted Outstanding Nursery and after school setting, which has been offering childcare with excellence in the heart of Bradford on Avon for nearly 20 years.

Westview & Shambles Day Nursery provide high quality, full time nursery care for children from three months to 5 years old.

"The manager provides an exemplary mentor, so that all staff provide high quality care and learning for children"

The Club is an interactive environment for children between 4 and 11 years old to relax and play before school, after school and during the holidays.


Learning and growing together

We have created a warm, inviting atmosphere where children can gain experience and build confidence in a safe environment.

It’s really important to us that the children experience a true continuation of care from home and within the nursery setting. In order for them to learn at a pace that is right and feels comfortable for them, we find it really important to stay in regular contact with parents and carers. We do this by operating an open doors policy, as well as having a dedicated key worker for each child who is available for each family to discuss development. This can be done at the nursery face to face or through our parent link app. The app is a digital record of your child’s progress, which includes day-to-day information, photography and a two-way communication tool to discuss your child’s learning and development.

We love to create a family atmosphere and invite all our families to our BBQ & Sports Day each summer!


Flexible childcare

Westview & Shambles are open from 7.00am to 6.30pm, Monday to Friday throughout the year. We work on an hourly basis, allowing families to choose the hours that best suit their individual needs.

We are registered for children from 12 weeks to school age, when they can move on to The Club – our out of school, after school and breakfast club.

The children take part in a range of activities whilst at Westview & Shambles Day Nursery. This is one way we feel we stand out from the crowd, offering a wide range of opportunities to children before they reach school age, embracing talents and learning new skills. The children partake in activities out in the community as well as music lessons with 'Making Music With Monty', swimming lessons to gain water confidence as well as dance to help them gain an appreciation of regular exercise.



‘Excellent staff deployment and vigilant supervision helps to safeguard children both on and off the premises’.
